What's Coming and Going From Netflix the Week of July 15, 2019

Jerry Seinfeld is back behind the wheel of a lot of fancy cars (and it looks like one moped?) as the next installment of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee drops on Friday. Bridget Everett, Eddie Murphy, Matthew Broderick, Jamie Foxx and Seth Rogen are all part of the innocuous, low-commitment froth this time around. If you prefer something with a very slight bit more gravitas, may I suggest...

How to Use Netflix's 'Smart Download' Feature For iOS

How to Use Netflix's 'Smart Download' Feature For iOS

Last summer Netflix launched a new “Smart Downloads” feature on Android and this week it brought the same feature to iOS.

The feature, which can be toggled on and off, sets things up so that Netflix will automatically download new episodes for you and delete old ones. The idea is you’ll always have new things to watch without having to download an entire season at once and killing your...

Learn Another Language While Watching Netflix Using This App

Learn Another Language While Watching Netflix Using This App

Learning a new language is hard. After eight years of French, I was an abysmal failure at the language until I spent a month in the country using it regularly. There’s something about seeing words and phrases used in context that makes them a lot easier to understand than just reading them in a textbook.

Lingvo is an app that lets you use Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon Video to help you pick up...

What's Coming and Going From Netflix the Week of December 31, 2018

The end of year offerings from Netflix were grim, so it is with pleasure that I welcome the bumper crop of entertainment in this week’s harvest. We’ve got the full complement of Indiana Jones flicks arriving on Tuesday (I see we are now calling the first installment “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark,” which I guess is helpful for alphabetical filing?)

Old Home Week continues with...

This Auto-Pausing Netflix Extension is a Must-Have for Chrome Users

This Auto-Pausing Netflix Extension is a Must-Have for Chrome Users

One of my favorite Netflix tricks is a simple one. When you’re watching your favorite TV show on the streaming service within your web browser, not a standalone Netflix app, odds are good you’ll encounter opening credits and have to drag your mouse over and click the handy “skip intro” button to get going. I think that’s too much work, since you can also just tap “s” on your keyboard to...

If you have a Netflix account then you’ve probably binge watched at least a show or two. But are you binge-watching the same thing your neighbors are?

High-Speed Internet recently took a look at what the most popular shows to watch were on the service and broke those answers down by state.

What's Coming and Going From Netflix the Week of November 5, 2018

Let’s cut the crap and stop pretending there’s anything you want to watch this week besides The Great British Baking Show: Collection 6 (better known as Series 9 in the UK). It’s the most soothing show that ever there was and we all know it.

Too sticky sweet? Then perhaps you’ll enjoy Westside,  a new “unscripted Netflix series” (read: “reality show”) that was definitely elevator-pitched as...

Jeffrey Wright and Alexander Skarsgård in a “harrowing mystery” set in a remote Alaskan village? Let’s do this! Hold the Dark is directed by Jeremy Saulnier (Blue Ruin) and premieres on Friday. I haven’t seen A Wrinkle in Time (Tuesday) and probably won’t watch because it will ruin my precious memories of the book (Charles Wallace!), but I hear it’s very good for kids.

Oh, and there’s a new...

Is there one show everyone agrees is stellar? Yes, and that show is Black Mirror. And Season 5 (there have been four seasons?! We are getting old, friends) drops on Wednesday. Wednesday! A weird day of the week to debut a highly anticipated series! Start coughing and complaining of chills on Monday and your calling in sick on Wednesday will seem totally plausible.

How to Avoid 'Stranger Things 3' Spoilers on the Web

“Stranger Things 3" is officially out today. If you opted to spend Independence Day outside celebrating with friends rather than glued to your television, then there’s a good chance you might potentially end up running into a spoiler or two before you get caught up on your binge-watching.

Here are a few ways to make sure your watching remains spoiler free:

What's Coming and Going From Netflix the Week of September 17, 2018

I’m most excited this week about a weird limited series called Maniac from Cary Joji Fukunaga (Beasts of No Nation, True Detective, It). Emma Stone and Jonah Hill star as patients in a “mindbending pharmaceutical trial gone awry.” It looks like they hallucinate themselves into a lot of wacky situations, allowing for lots of different costumes, wigs and prosthetics, which is always a good...

What to Watch When It's Hot as Hell and You Refuse to Go Outside

What to Watch When It's Hot as Hell and You Refuse to Go Outside

Post-July 4th, things get disgusting, weather-wise, in much of the U.S. In New York City, where I and much of Team Lifehacker live, we spend a lot of time outside, shuffling through the humid, hot-dog-scented soup that is summer in a crowded, polluted metropolis. And so we become indoor cats, taking refuge indoors, looking for the hermit’s equivalent of the beach read, which, as everyone...

'Black Panther' Is on Netflix and You Should Watch It This Weekend

'Black Panther' Is on Netflix and You Should Watch It This Weekend

This is your friendly weekend entertainment concierge reminding you that Black Panther was released on Netflix on Tuesday . If you’ve already seen Crazy Rich Asians and Eighth Grade and BlacKkKlansman, you should stay home, invite a couple pals over, make some spicy prosciutto spread , and watch it. It’s so infrequent that a recent, good, see-it-more-than-once Oscar contender (yes, even with...

What's Coming and Going From Netflix the Week of January 21, 2019

I’m excited about Black Earth Rising (Friday), a BBC drama about a survivor of the Rwandan genocide who becomes a human rights attorney and ends up working on a case involving an African militia leader. For whatever reason, John Goodman is in it, which is weird for a British show but I’m not complaining.

I’m probably the only one of us who is kind of looking forward to the...

It’s May, and your cup runneth over—if not in all areas of your life, then at least the most important one: the area in which you recline on your sectional, eating Pop Corners while alternately watching TV and playing on your phone (some call this area the “living room”; I prefer “salon” or “parlour”). We’ve got Knock Down the House (Wednesday), a doc about AOC’s 2018 congressional campaign....

Life is hard, and for this reason, you deserve something nice, which is why I got you Nailed It!: Season 3 (Friday). There’s a lady with Iris Apfel glasses this season!

We’ve already discussed how I feel about the NO Still LAUGH-IN: The Stars Celebrate  (also Friday) so I won’t go into it again except to say that I’m pretty sure the show, which I remember as a mixture of catchphrases...

A moody teen love story with a supernatural twist featuring Guy Pearce uttering lines like, “You’re a young woman in a frightening new world. I think you just need somebody to walk through it with you”? Could it be this summer’s answer to Stranger Things? Let us hope that The Innocents (Friday, Aug. 24) is even half as entertaining— if it is, it’ll win the week.

Other promising debuts include...

I will not, for love or money, be watching Bumping Mics with Jeff Ross & Dave Attel, but I’m aware that these are two “comedian’s comedians” and there are a lot of people who do not find them tedious and self-indulgent. So, feel free to watch these two dudes “roast each other, the audience, and special guests” starting Tuesday.

I’m going to throw my (top) hat in the ring for Death by Magic...

Black Panther. Tuesday. If you need anything else to watch, Next Gen (Friday, Sept. 7), an animated kid-and-robot-vs.-the-bullies feature starring John Krasinski, Jason Sudeikis and Charlyne Yi looks kind of fun. Its tagline is “Friendship is the ultimate upgrade” which, having just gotten AirPods, I take issue with—but the movie’s probably decent nonetheless.

Whatever is going on in the calamitous phantasmagoria known as I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson (Tuesday) is both frightening and intriguing, and it’s the best you’re going to do on Netflix this week. Allegedly, it’s a sketch comedy show brought to you by The Lonely Island, starring Robinson, of Comedy Central’s Detroiters (I must be watching too much Netflix because this is the...
